But this can be done.
First get the Utilities`Notation` package.

In[1]:=
<<Utilities`Notation` 

Then depress Symbolize[] on the displayed Notation Palette. Now
(Symbolize[]) should be in a cell in your notebook. Click on the dark
square (properly none as \[SelectionPlaceholder])  inside the brackets
of Symbolize[].   Now type  x (CTRL,&) \[DoubleDot]
Evaluate this cell and (x double dot) should be a symbol.

Note:
By (CTRL,&)I mean to depress "CTRL" and "&" at the same time. (See the
Mathematica Book, section 3.10.2, page 909.)

You should end up with the cell represented by the code below.

(******* CODE **************)

\!\(\*
  RowBox[{"Symbolize", "[", 
    TagBox[\(x\&\[DoubleDot]\),
      NotationBoxTag,
      Editable->True], "]"}]\)

(******* CODE **************)

This may not be possible without using a String for "0a".
